QUIZ: How much do you know about the sex lives of young adults?

Brought to you by ellaOne.

Have you got the knowledge?


The sex lives of young adults is a mystery - or at least it was until now.

If you have been following our Girls with Goals podcast over the last five weeks you will know that here at Her, we carried out national research and have been roaming the streets of Dublin, Cork, and Galway asking all of YOU about sex. Yes, it's true. Yes, we are nosy like that. And we found out quite a bit.

We teamed up with morning after pill brand, ellaOne, to learn all about your sexual experiences, contraceptive failures, where you guys got your sex-ed, and all the kinds of risky business you get up to. And the results were pretty shocking.


We all know that having unprotected sex is NOT a smart idea (need we mention the risk of unplanned pregnancy and STIs?), but from what we gathered, a fair number of us have taken the risk anyway.

Why is that?

Is it because we don't know just how big of a risk we're actually taking or that we simply don't care about the consequences? Or is it because, when it comes down to it, a lot of us just don't know that much about sex?

What about you? Have you had unprotected sex before? Would you ever take the risk?


We have put together a little quiz so you can see how you stack up against our national research. Let's see how much you know about young Irish people's sex lives. We definitely think you'll be surprised by a few of these answers.
